For your programme, work experience is a compulsory element. Support is given to students to find placements. Students will have to complete a minimum of 76 hours of external work experience at a related industry. 

The college has a strict policy in place when approving work placements – students must not commence placement until they have received notification of approval by the college.

In addition to work experience, during your programme, you will be invited in to college to listen to guest speakers working in the industry. 

Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.

For your course, you will need:

  • Students will require regular access to a computer with a broadband Internet connection in order to participate in webinars, download learning materials, watch recorded webinars and submit assignments.  A headset with microphone will be required for participation in webinars and on-line tutorials.

  • Students must have regular access to a dog to enable them to progress through the training modules
  • Sturdy footwear suitable for practical sessions
  • Training equipment will be required (i.e. clicker and target stick) for the training related modules
  • The college has a strict policy of not allowing work boots inside college buildings – you will need to have alternative footwear (shoes or trainers) to attend lectures and tutorials.
  • Roughly £150 to cover the costs of field trips, visits and additional add on certificates over the duration of your programme
  • Block sessions are a compulsory element of the programme. Students will need to fund their own travel, accommodation and food
  • Payment for the boarding kennels is required if a student decides to bring their own dog to the relevant block session
